2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C300 Luxury 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 7A)
I couldn't wait to get this car when it first came out. I test drove the BMW 3 series a few times before I made my decision to get the Benz. There is nothing like seeing the emblem on the hood of the car when you are driving down the highway. I have not had any issues with this car and the gas mileage is great. The service a A+ as well.
The brakes are fantastic and the sound system is great. For what you are paying the interior is a lot nicer than the BMW. Spring for all of the bells and whistles. You won't regret it.
The turn signal should be above the cruise control on the steering wheel. I can't tell you how many times I've turned on the cruise control when I meant to use the turn signal.
